Photo of the Day: Great Wall of China
Dream Trip 2009 is well underway! For inspiration, here's a new entry that caught our eye:
Almost as iconic as the Great Wall of China itself are the massive crowds who descend on crenellated structure that snakes over the mountains. That's what makes mfogard's "Great Wall of China" remarkable. Not only does it frame the World Heritage Site in all its recognizable glory, from its vantage point, it hints at the idea of a journey to come -- and it does so without picturing a soul.
"It was a rare occasion just before the Beijing Olympic games that I was able to feel like I was the only one within a country of billions," writes mfogard. "On one of the most famous places in the world, it was incredible."
